From: http://www.naturalbalanceinc.com/

NOTICE:
We are receiving consumer complaints regarding the Venison & Brown Rice Dry Dog Food, and Venison & Green Pea Dry Cat Foods. We do not know what is wrong with the food at this time, but we have heard that animals are vomiting and experiencing kidney problems. Although the problems seem to be focused on one particular lot, as a precautionary measure, we are pulling all dates of Venison & Brown Rice Dry Dog Food and Venison & Green Pea Dry Cat Food from the shelves.

Please discontinue feeding all Venison and Brown Rice Dry Dog Food, and Venison and Green Pea Dry Cat Food.

We are working closely with the FDA.
We will update this website today, as more information comes available.

NO OTHER NATURAL BALANCE PRODUCTS ARE AFFECTED

Everytime they show that horrible tape on the news of the cattle being so abused.. I have to turn away......... I am not a vegetarian, however I strongly think the guidelines of humane treatment should be enforced to the letter, with very serious penalties to those who violate...-- It can be done as a few organic farms at least report they follow humane practices....

Big business and greed is something that is changing the country we live in to such a degree, these recalls will become more common I suspect...

Recall Alert Update
Merrick Beef Filet Squares

(Also called Texas Hold'ems) For Dogs Recalled For Possible Salmonella Contamination

Merrick Beef Filet Squares for dogs (also called Texas Hold’ems) in 10 oz bags from Merrick Pet Care, Inc. of Amarillo, Texas have been recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. This recall includes all Merrick Beef Filet Squares For Dogs (Texas Hold’ems) regardless of the lot number or “best by” date on the bag

If you have Merrick Beef Filet Squares for Dogs (Texas Hold'ems), please stop feeding them to your pet immediately and return them to PSP for a complete refund.

Returned items should be double wrapped in plastic bags to avoid exposure to possibly contaminated product. If your pet has any unfinished Merrick Beef Filet Squares, be sure to remove them safely from your home, disposing of them so they are not accessible to pets, wildlife or children.

All surface areas that come into contact with any product suspected of being contaminated with Salmonella should be washed and disinfected. Wear protective gloves or wash your hands thoroughly in very warm soapy water after handling contaminated product. (Even if you wear gloves, wash your hands after handling.)

Also clean and disinfect all surfaces that have come into contact with the food, including food bowls. Be sure bowls are rinsed thoroughly and allowed to dry before reusing. Pet bedding or crates should also be cleaned thoroughly and then treated with a pet-safe disinfectant. Click here for the PSP safe clean-up guideline.

Salmonella can be transferred to people from pet feces, so extra care should be taken when picking up after your pet and waste should be disposed of safely. Always wash hands thoroughly after waste clean up.

Pregnant women, young children, the elderly and anyone recovering from an illness should not handle products that may be contaminated with Salmonella.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

No illnesses have been reported to date from the recalled product. A sample tested positive for Salmonella at the production facility.

For further information, consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-664-7387 M-F 8:00 – 5:00 CDT.
